Please help us save the bees. If you or a neighbor finds a swarm of bees on your property, don't spray, call us instead! An experienced beekeeper can safely remove the swarm and reintroduce it to a new hive. This keeps the honey bees from establishing their new home under your rooftop eaves, inside an exterior wall, or under a deck.

Swarming is a natural behavior in honey bees. They are generally not dangerous to you or passersby. Usually, they are much too busy looking for a new home to be interested in you! Please DO NOT SPRAY the bees with pesticides or chemicals. Help us protect the honey bees! Our food supply depends on their hard pollination work.
